Microneedling treatment for your skin in Houston, TX
Dr. Seymour Weaver of Dr. W Dermatology is a dermatological professional ready to work with patients to help them with a variety of skin, hair, nail, and body concerns. Patients in the area of Houston, TX who want to address poor skin texture and tone, while treating issues such as acne or the signs of aging, may want to ask their dermatologist about the benefits of treatment with microneedling.
What is microneedling?
Our staff describes microneedling as a skin restoration and rejuvenation solution that is affordable and incredibly effective. Patients faced with the following concerns may benefit from this procedure:
- Acne and acne scarring
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Large pores
- Skin discoloration and hyperpigmentation
- Aging skin
Microneedling works by piercing the skin with very fine needles using a specialized device. This may sound unpleasant, and many of our patients are unsure how it works. By piercing the skin, it stimulates the body’s natural healing process. In this process, the body builds collagen in the treatment area. This process is also referred to as “Collagen Induction Therapy”, or CIT. Collagen adds volume and youthfulness to the skin, and commonly declines on its own around the time patients reach the age of 30. With treatments such as this that boost collagen production, patients can turn back time while improving their skin’s overall appearance.
Why choose microneedling for your skin?
There are many reasons why patients choose microneedling, but they often do so because they want a solution that is effective, affordable, and provides natural results. Microneedling is performed in our practice by a trained, experienced staff member who can ensure safety throughout the procedure. Microneedling is less expensive than traditional laser therapies, but still penetrates just as deep for amazing results. Patients of all skin types and ethnicities can enjoy this method of treatment!
How often do I need microneedling?
Microneedling should be performed in at least three treatment sessions and spaced out four weeks apart. This ensures optimum results.
Side effects of microneedling
There are minimal side effects associated with microneedling. It can cause patients to experience some redness and irritation of the skin, but this does not last long following their treatment. Dry skin and peeling can occur, but this is perfectly normal and is a sign that the treatment is working!
Who is a candidate for microneedling?
Any adult patients interested in rejuvenating their skin may want to consider the benefits of moving forward with microneedling treatments. Microneedling is great for many of our patients, and we encourage individuals to book a consultation appointment with our dermatologist to assess their skin and discuss solutions that may work for addressing their complaints.
How long do results last?
Collagen stimulation provides long-lasting results, allowing patients to see improvement for years. Periodic treatments may be necessary to combat the signs of aging as they gradually reappear.
What are alternatives to microneedling?
Microneedling is not the only treatment option for patients seeking skin rejuvenation services. Some other solutions for patients to think about, which are also available at Dr. W Dermatology, include:
- Chemical peels
- Cosmetic injectables
- Laser therapies
- Platelet Rich Plasma
- IPL photofacials
- Blue light therapy
Some patients may want to learn about ways to incorporate microneedling into their skin care routine or to use in conjunction with any of the above services. To achieve the most noticeable, fastest results, patients can use a variety of services together by working with their dermatologist to develop a long-term treatment plan for enhancing their skin. Speaking with our staff about combining skin rejuvenation procedures together is a great conversation for the first consultation and evaluation with a Skin Care Specialist working with Dr. Seymour Weaver.
